I'm honored to be your child's teacher this school year. I relocated to Arizona with my family in 2006 from Portland, Oregon. We have two adult sons, both graduates of ASU. I consider all my students, present and past, as extended members of my family and will always do my best to help and support them in their learning. If you ever have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, I hope you will email, call, or write me a note in your child’s daily planner; I will get back to you.

My Education and Professional Background

I am a graduate of the Mary Lou Fulton School of Education at ASU. I've worked for Chandler Unified for the past 11 years. I previously worked in International Banking, but I must say, teaching is my career of choice!

My Educational Philosophy

My goal and responsibity as a teacher is to help all of my students reach their full potential. I believe it's important to always show kindness and respect for each other. I encourage and expect my students to do their personal best and encourage their classmates to do the same. I also believe it takes a village to raise a child well. Working together with parents and families to support our children is vital to their success.
